by Trevor Noah
As host of The Daily Show, Noah is well-known for his comedic timing and excellent, highly intelligent wit. But prior to the publication of this inspiring and comedic memoir, only a few people knew just how close to becoming totally unknown he was. As the title suggests, he was literally born a crime in South Africa: his father was white and his mother black during Apartheid, a time when interracial unions were punishable by time in prison. In this collection of stories, Noah depicts with humor and grace the extreme challenges he overcame as he figured out how to identify himself and just where in the world he belonged.
